the greatest of ease. Intellectually 
he is well endowed, and has a well- 
developed sense of musical values. 
He will undoubtedly rank very high

BEAUTIFUL FURS 







OEAUTIFUL furs express 
the fine taste of dress, 
as strongly as the voice and 
instrument express the tal- 
ent and training of a mus- 
ical artist. 

A well-dressed woman is 
always attractive; it matters 
not what height or how 
slender or stout. 

Our furs fill every desire 
for the much wanted effect. 
No matter what kind of fur 
is your choice, we have it 
in correct style and quality, 
at a moderate price. We put 
forth every effort to produce 
our garments at the lowest 
possible price, consistent 
with quality, workmanship 
and style, and our ever in- 
creasing sales prove that 
our efforts are not in vain.

practically every qual-

voice, ample range, 
tone absolutely true to

Olive June Lacey created quite a 
stir, a hiatus in the regular course 
of programmed proceedings some- 
what in the manner of Auditorium

of the Micaela aria and the exquis-

THE EVENING TELEGRAM, TORONTO, FRIDAY. JUNE 26, 1925 

THREE BRILLIANT ARTISTS 



ispr 



PRINGLE TRIO AT GRAND 



Pringle Sisters Share Rich Musical Gifts — Offerings Char- 
acterized by Taste, Brilliance and Beauty. 

It was a large audience that heard the Pringle Trio in concert recital 
at the Grand Opera House last evening. The trio is composed of three 
sisters, Misses Agnes, Lillian and Jessie Pringle — violinist, cellist, and 
soprano and pianist, respectively. Very rarely indeed are musical gifts 
distributed so generously in one family, as they are amongst these tal- 
ented artists. Each is a soloist of distinction, and their music in ensem- 
ble — whether instrumental trio, solo or vocal number with obligato — has 
a sympathetic quality that intuition alone can induce. Last evening's 
programme was excellent in every feature, refined and representative in 
selection and delightful in presentation. Trio numbers included the 
Mendelssohn's Trio, Op. 49, Kreisler's arrangement of the Londonderry 
Air, a Grieg Norwegian Dance, and Schutt's Waltz Marches. 

FINE LYRIC SOPRANO 

Miss Jessie Pringle sang the Tosca Aria "Vissi d'Arte," the Valse 
"Ah! Je Veux Vivre" from Gounod's "Romeo and Juliet," and lyrics of 
Woodman, Hageman, Beach and Rabey. Her work at the pianoforte was 
a pattern of what splendid technique, refinement of temperament and 
artistic self-forgetfulness can achieve. The piano sang as sweetly as the 

strings, and never once 
strayed beyond the con- 





LILLIAN PFGLEC

fines of a finely balanced 

ensemble. Her singing, too, was one of the ha 
evening. Her lyric soprano is one of those light!; 
tones float free as air. Because there is no efTo 
you never weary of them. And behind beauty of t< 
tion there is splendid interpretive sense. Many 
cannot sing half so well, and yet singing is sometigless 
what Miss Jessie Pringle can do, and did, last eveig, 

Miss Agnes Pringle, violinist, and Miss Lilliay'rii 
alike in the rich beauty of their tone and a techni : 
make you forget it is there. Miss Agnes Pring^ijs tb, 
that golden quality with a glint along its edge, 
intricacies of the Vieuxtemps D Minor Concerto 
smooth legatos and the firm assurance of its crisp 
lighter numbers there was a grace of phrase anjdeljcac 
that revealed the instinctive artist. 

'Cello items were: "Variations Symphonique 
lequin," Poppe; an Adagio of Schumann; Poppe'sjSoi 
Sammartini's Old Italian Love Song.

dices. Surely there are very few ladies who can p

tone is noble, sonorous, suave, and absolutely convincing. Sympathetic 
beyond everything, it never sinks to mere sentimentalism. Her phrases 
are broad and deliberate, and the restraint of her art is little short of 
wonderful when you realize the deep emotional resources that are 
undoubtedly hers. Roughness of tone and erratic attack are impossible 
to her, and her shading is as delicate as that of the violin. 

EXCELLENT ENSEMBLE WORK 

Three such gifted artists couldn't fail to deligrht in ensemble, and 
their trio playing was good to hear, and even better to remember. When 
music leaves you wondering where the spontaniety of it begins and the 
discipline of it e nds • — End vice versa ^ — ycu may be sure it is very 
beautiful music indeed. And such was the music of the Pringle Trio 
last night. Apart from its technique — which was brilliant — and its taste, 
restraint and expressiveness — which were beyond praise, there was an 
unaffected sincerity about it all, that made it the most delightful and 
enjoyable sort of music you ever wish to hear. 

Other press comments from New York, Chicago and other 
large cities sent upon request.

JESSIE PRINGLE, Soprano and Pianist 

The ability to do two things with the finish, ease and artistry with 
which Jessie Pringle accomplishes her vocal or pianistic eflforts is 
indeed a rarity. She studied abroad with Lamperti, Franz Prochowsky 
and Van Raatz Brockman, and in New York with Herbert Witherspoon 
and Oscar Saenger. She had successful concert appearances in Beethoven 
and Philharmonic Hall in Berlin. 

AGNES PRINGLE, Violinist 

Agnes Pringle studied with Bernhard Listemann, Emile Sauret, and 
Hugo Hermann, here, and abroad with Issay Barmas, of Berlin; Goby 
Eberhardt of Nice, France, and in London with Leopold Auer, the famous 
teacher of Elman and Heifitz. She made concert appearances in Berlin 
and Nice and Queen's Hall, London, with great success. In America 
she appeared with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. 

LILLIAN PRINGLE, Cellist 

Originally a Bruno Steindel pupil, Lillian Pringle later completed her 
studies in Berlin with that great master, Anton Hekking. She found 
warm reception in musical circles in Europe appearing before royalty 
in recitals and with orchestras, returning to America to win more 
triumphs, a finished product, with a great technique and a beautiful 
suave tone and understanding of her instrument.

The purposes of the American Opera Society of Chicago 
are: 

To encourage the use of our language in opera and con- 
cert in English-speaking countries by recommendation of 
adequate translations; to encourage the performance of 
American opera or music-drama; and to give just recogni- ][ 

tion to the American composer of ability. 
To award the David Bispham Memorial Medal in Chicago 
whenever possible; or elsewhere, when satisfactory pre- ] 

sentation of an American opera has been obtained by this 
society. 

The American Opera Society of Chicago announces with i 

satisfaction the accomplishment of two objectives; the ade- 
quate translation of foreign opera librettos by Charles 
Henry Meltzer to be published through the generous ' 

courtesy of, and as the 1! 

EDITH ROCKEFELLER McCORMICK EDITION n 

The second objective: a fitting memorial to the late and 
great American baritone, as the 

DAVID BISPHAM MEMORIAL MEDAL | 

(For American Grand Opera) i 

The twelve (educational) performances of American Opera 
given by this Society proved, beyond a question that, our 
public receives with equal enthusiasm with the foreign, " 

OUR MUSIC, OUR ARTIST, and OUR LANGUAGE, \\ 

when give.i the opportunity. We have heard that the '< 

receipts (per performance) at the Chicago Civic Opera ' 

last season vi^ere the largest for OPERA IN ENGLISH. ... I 

The completion of this work must be done by the public, 
for only through open discussion on the subject, and the [ 

final decision, for or against the development of our n 

musical art through the use of our vernacular, will depend '| 

the future of the American Composer and Artist, and 

AMERICAN MUSICAL ART. 
The translated operas to date are: (Published: *Carmen ! 

and Pagliacci, 25 cents per copy) ; to be published in order ' 

of the demand; Louise, Falstaff, Andre Chenier, Madam [

Some Interesting Facts About 

The Chicago Symphony Orchestra 

FREDERICK STOCK, Conductor. 
ERIC DELAMARTER, Assistant Conductor 

The Chicago Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1891 by Theodore 
Thomas, supported by a number of public spirited Chicagoans. 

It has had but two conductors — Theodore Thomas for fourteen years and 
Frederick Stock, the present conductor, since January, 1905. 

Its full membership is ninety-two players. Its conductor, Frederick Stock, 
was chosen from the ranks of the orchestra after the death of Theodore 
Thomas, and after consideration of all the greatest conductors of Eurspe, 

Third Oldest Orchestra in America 

It gives eight series of concerts 
in Chicago, six of which are given 
in its own home — Orchestra Hall : 

One series of twenty-eight suc- 
cessive Friday afternoon Sym- 
phony Concerts ; 

One of twenty-eight successive 
Saturday evening Symphony Con- 
certs ; 

One of six Tuesday afternoon 
Symphony Concerts. 

One of sixteen Popular Concerts ; 

One of six Children's Concerts 
(Series A) ; 

One of six Children's Concerts 
(Series B) ; 

One of eight Symphony Concerts 
at the University of Chicago; 

One of five Popular Concerts at 
the Union Stock Yards, making a 
total of one hundred and ten con- 
certs, all to capacity audiences. 

The "Pop" Concerts 
The Popular Concerts (established 
in 1914) reach a clientele scarcely 
touched by the symphony series. 
The tickets are in great demand, but 
"regular" concert goers find diffi- 
culty in securing them. The pur- 
pose of these concerts is to reach the masses, the tickets being distributed (sold) 
through welfare departments of industrial plants, social settlement houses, etc. 

The Civic Orchestra 

Of general interest, and, in the minds of those Chicagoans conversant with 
musical affairs, of great value to the general cause of orchestral music in 
America is the work of the Civic Orchestra of Chicago (established in 1919), 
the maintenance of which is assured by the co-operation of the Civic Music 
Association of Chicago and the Orchestral Association. The former under- 
takes the financial enrollment and public performances details, and the latter 
gives the free use of Orchestral Hall for rehearsals and the use of extensive 
library, and concurs in the gratuitous services of its conductor and assistant 
conductor for rehearsals and concerts, and its management in the promotion 
of public performances. Four rehearsals a week are held during the concert 
season — October to May; and public performances are given in Orchestra 
Hall. The Chicago, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Minneapolis, St. Louis and 
Rochester Symphony Orchestra have recruited players from the ranks of this 
"student" orchestra.

Dorothy Bell 

Harpist 

Chicago Daily Journal — 

Has something which cannot be 
learned, but is given at birth. Good 
tone — ample dexterity — easy infatuation 
with music's grace. 

Marquette (Mich.) Daily Mining 
Journal — 

Miss Dorothy Bell's personality was 
as charming as her playing on the 
harp, and that is saying a good deal. 

Chicago Evening Post — 

"Dorothy Bell is a harpist with a 
good technical equipment and an ap- 
preciation for the music intended for 
the harp. She played well last evem- 
ing. She brought variety of tone qual- 
ity from the harp. It is a difficult 
instrument to play."

Chicago Evening American — Herman Devries: 
Found the songs happily chosen to illustrate 
the singer's ability and voice, the latter of 
meaty, individual timbre, pliant enough to 
respond to dynamic demands, flie former suf- 
ficient to express the poem's moods and 
significance. 

Chicago Evening Post — Kairleton Hackett; 
Miss Rabinofi' has a voice of good range. She 
sang with understanding of the music and 
appreciation of the text. 

Minneapolis Journal — Dr. Victor Nilsson: 
Her diction is fashioned into an elo'juent 
whole with the melodic texture and mood of 
the composition. She is a born dramatic 
soprano; sings with vital and telling feeling. 
Her voice has both sonority and beauty. 
Minneapolis Star — A. I. Harris: Miss Rabi- 
noff displayed a voice of natural sweetness 
. . . sings her songs faultlessly . . . one 
of the best soloists heard here this season. 
Saturday Post, Minneapolis — Dr. I. W. Mar- 
cus: Miss RabinofF took her audience by 



PRESS COMMENTS 

storm. Her voice is marvelous, many- 
colored and very graceful and she uses it 
intelligently and with dramatic intensity. 

American Jewish World — J. Ernest Kammin: 

Miss RabinofT has a gorgeous dramatic so- 
prano voice; she has accuracy of tone and 
tremendous volume that almost overwhelms. 

White Bear Press — A. H. Benedict: Miss 
RabinofT sang with her whole heart and soul. 
A singer of the first order — a voice of ex- 
ceptional range — filled the large hall without 
ihe slightest effort. 

Duluth Herald— Rizpah Mitchell: Miss Rabi- 
nofif has a pleasing soprano voice of unusual 
range and power. She sang with equal fa- 
cility in French, Italian, Russian, German, 
Hebrew and English. Evidenced technical 
1 ' motional resources, excellent enuncia* 
tion, variety of tone color. 
Duluth News-Tribune— Dr. J. W. F.: Ac- 
quitted herself in a manner that might have 
aroused the envy of many a veteran con- 
cert singer. Generously endowed by nature 
with a glorious voice; unusual wide range 
. . . charming personality, engaging stage 
presence . . . rendered with perfect ease and 
clarity . . . she was superb.

u^ Great Singer! A Great Teacher! 

Mead of Vocal Normal Dept. Gunn School of Music, Chicago, III.

nounced by that greatest of American operatic and concert baritones "An 
exceptionally gifted artist." Mr. Barker has had many years' experience in 
opera, recital, and oratorio. During the last two seasons he has filled no less 
than 150 engagements throughout the Middle West. 

RECENT PRESS NOTICES 



"He has a voice, English enunciation, 
and an enthusiasm that will carry him 
far." — Edward Moore, The Chicago Tri- 
bune. 

"He sings with much of that power of 
definition which made David Bispham a 
great figure in the world of song." — 
Glenn Dillard Gunn, Chicago American. 

"The fact that_ Stuart Barker was re- 
called twice is evidence of the pleasure he 



gave with his rendition of 'The Toreador' 
song from Carmen.' " — Muskegon (Mich ) 
Daily Chronicle. 

"His admirable voice and musical de- 
livery made his performance a delight." — 
The Niagara Falls, N. Y., Gazette. 

"Mr. Barker received an ovation from 
the vast audience present, thus proving 
his rank as a great artist." — Toronto

In a most fascinating manner; Mrs. 
Bartlett has set to music short descrip- 
tive poems, in which she gives to chil- 
dren impressive history of the great com- 
posers. Mrs. Bartlett more than fulfiUed 
our expectations. A most pleasing per- 
sonality, a thorough understanding of 
children and_ a wonderful talent for mu- 
sical composition make it possible for her 
to pre'sent this very unique program. —

Your music, with your little talks, 

reached the hearts of all. It was a most 

auspicious opening for our club year, and 

the members always refer to it as the 

finest program the Music Class has ever

I Miss Bernstein interprets as well a 

I sings and to good effect along both i 
I lines. She has both understanding and 
power. 

— Edward Moore, Chicago Daily Tri- 
bune. 

Miss Bernstein has a voice of sym- 
pathetic quality and power. There was 
interpretative force in her singing that 
' made the meaning of the music carry. 
— Kcu-leton Hackett, The Chicago Eve- 

Miss Bernstein's warm temperament 
^ and unusually keen intelligence set off 
I her fine, young voice, a soprano also 
boasting solidity and tonal depth. 

She can bend it to her will and tame 
its volume to the sheerest pianissimo, 
as she so well demonstrated by her 
beautiful delivery of the Gretchaninov 
Slumber Song, which was a mere 
I breath of lovely quality. 

She received heartiest recognition 
from the large audience. 
— Herman Devries, The Chicago Amer- 
ican 
■ 

Miss Bernstein has a temperament to 
make such songs as Rubinstein's "Der 
Asra," Rimsky-Korsakow's "In Silent 
I Woods," a "Cradle Song," Gretchani- 
I nov, and "Come Child Beside Me" by 
Bleichmann, eflfective in delivery and 
graphic in interpretation. Her_ voice 
has quality; it is used with intelli- 
gemce and skill and has a fine timbre. 
She sang the Saminsky song, "Esther- 
ka," and made it a poignant and soul- 
ful number.

An appreciation — ^There is no sweeter 
voice o!i the American platform, which 
means the platform of the world. Lyric 
and tragic, with depth of purest and 
most sympathetic emotion, she plays 
upon the heart as Welsh Thomas 
played upon the harp. Naturally en- f 
dowed and cultivated she steals the f 
sweetest secret of your bosom, warms f 
it into throbbing melody and gives it X 
back to you. — Opie Read. !

"Thelma Hinds Bollinger was 
a genuine artist. Her singing of 
the 'Oh, My Heart Is Weary' re- 
vealed the fact that she might 
easily attempt the most difficult 
arias or songs. Her's a gorgeous 
voice, deep, full, resonant, with 
an appealing warmth. She was 
sure of herself and sure of her 
aria. It suited her well. The 
dramatic quality revealed 
showed she could easily attempt 
operatic roles." — Musical Leader.

Mme. De Lamarter has remarkable 
grasp of music, fine enunciation, and 
has lived in an atmosphere of the 
higher music that has refined her taste 
in every branch of the art. Her voice 
is light, clear and pure in timbre, true 
to the pitch. * * * Mme. De Lamarter 
looked very charming, made little fuss 
over her breathing, yet carried long 
phrases, and trying ones too. She has 
poise, ease, grace, and her audience 
received her most cordially, compelling 
her to repeat some half dozen songs 
and add to the end of the program. 
— Karleton Hackett in Chicago Even- 
ing Post. 



Mrs. De Lamarter's voice, a soprano, 
which is remarkably well cultivated, 
has a timbre of unusual warmth and 
responds to her changing moods read- 
ily, was a revelition to her listeners. 
* ** Her English diction was excep- 
tionally clear. * * • Besides noteworthy 
vocal qualifications, this singer also 
has a most engratiating _ stage pres- 
ence. — Musical America.

First to Publish Artists' Fees 

The Musicians' and Allied Artists' Directory was the first 
medium of its kind to publish the terms of artist-advertisers. 
Not all advertisers are yet convinced that the policy is a good 
one, and for some it doubtless never will be, but there have 
been many good results and, as yet, no bad ones. The policy 
finds favor with Program Chairmen and will, it is believed, 
help to create a better idea of what artists are worth.

The Florentine Trio played more than one hundred and fifty concert 
engagements last season for Clubs, Churches, Musicales and Joint- 
Recitals. One third of these were re-engagements, and on almost 
every occasion they were re-engaged for another appearance for the 
coming season. These facts speak for themselves and attest to the 
great popularity of the trio. 

Although each member of the organization is an Artist of distinct 
individuality, they have succeeded in merging their art and person- 
alities to such a degree that their ensemble work has been praised by 
well known critics. 

This trio is superior to others, for they not only play trios from the 
best classics, but play solo numbers and duets to give variety to a 
program. 



People are anxious to hear this unusual organization, 
them. Their fee is right, too.

INTERPRETATION 

Dawn Hulbert, _ an engaging soprano, 
gave a song recital — and added to the 
enjoyment of her program by elucidat- 
ing thru unadorned rhetoric the texts 
of her songs. Miss Hulbert has the 
manner of the more intimate concert 
stage. She has a winning personality 
and added to this quality, she possesses 
a soprano voice which is best in its 
middle and lower_ registers, there it has 
a very good quality and also power. In 
some songs by Chausson, Koechlin, 
Duparc and Fourdrain, she projected 
the poetic, romantic atmosphere very 
well and gave them vivid interpreta- 
tion. 
— Maurice Rosenfeld, The Chicago Daily 

News. 

TASTE 
One of the notable features in Dawn 
Hulbert's song recital was her ability to 
select entertaining songs These Miss 
Hulbert prefaced with explanations, and 
then sang with an assured manner — de- 
veloped their emotional content — she has 
ability and talent. 
— Edward Moore, The Chicaso Tribune. 

APPEAL 
The auditorium \yas filled to its ca- 
pacity with an audience seemingly well 
pleased with the talents and attain- 
ments of the young singer. 
—Herman Devries, The Chicago Ameri- 
can. 

UNDERSTANDING 
Miss Dawn Hulbert has a lyric voice 
which showed to the best advantage in 
the lighter phrases of the lighter songs. 
She sang with understanding of the 
music. 

— Karleton Hackett, The Chicago Eve- 
ning Post. 



Dawn 
Hulbert 

Soprano 



SINCERITY 
Dawn Hulbert was heard in song re- 
cital with enthusiasm — the young so- 
prano showed every evidence of sincer- 
ity and of modesty. In time to come 
there is no reason why she should not 
find her way to a truly expressive and 
arresting style of song. 
— Eugene Stinson, The Chicago Journal 

CHARM 
Dawn Hulbert, a very charming young 
lady, sang several groups of modern 
Itove songs. Her voice was fresh and 
well trained — she has a subtle sense of 
humor and considerable dramatic abil- 
ity. 

— The Times News, Ann Arbor, Michi- 
gan. 

SPONTANEITY 
Spontaneity and charm characterized 
the song recital given by Dawn Hulbert 
— she has a high soprano of power and 
clarity — her work was infused with the 
novel. 

— The Michigan Daily, Ann Arbor, 
Michigan. 

ABILITY 
Miss Hulbert's program was exceed- 
ingly choice, the numbers having been 
chosen to give ample opportunity to 
display her dramatic and interpretive 
abilities. She has a pleasing person- 
ality — sang with perfect understanding 
of her music — her delicately pure high 
notes were beautiful. 

— St. Joseph Gsizette, St. Joseph, Mis- 
souri.

"Ella Snell Gara is a pianist of most

and wholly refined; played superbly; 
great facility and individualistic style. 
Also furnished most excellent accom-

"A pianist of great ability." — The

As a Teacher 

"Mrs. Gara is one of the most pains- 
taking teachers we know, and one of 
the finest in caliber. Bad tone with her 
is impossible. Pupils were uniformly 
artistic in use of damper pedal. The 
tone was invariably 'Gara-tone,' which 
means silvery-pure and sweet." — Music

A lyric voice of considerable flexibility. 
* * * engaging style. She sang a 
wide variety of airs and songs by Dr. 
Arne, Brahms, Schumann, Massenet, 
Chaminade, Rhene Baton and Gounod 
in the different languages. She made 
a flattering success. 
— Maurice Rosenfeld, Chicago DaUy

The warmest encouragement should

Ziflf is one who reflects the best am- 
bitions and quality of our musical co- 
terie. She displayed uncommon poise. 
She has a tender, appealing and win- 
ning platform manner_ and person — a 
decided sense of phrasing and a clear 
appreciation of the different schools. 
INTERPRETATIONS EXCELLENT 
—The interpretation of the old English 
"Have You Seen But a Whyte Lillie

of the classic school.

Solo Wind-Band. The organization's 
personnel will include 21 versatile musicians, each an expert 
performer on his instrument, selected from the Northwestern 
University Band and from the bands of the principal universi- 
ties of the Middle West. The Solo Band will limit its activi- 
ties to concerts and both classical and popular compositions 
will be presented with true collegiate spirit and finish. Corre- 
spondence is invited from managers of chautauquas, parks, 
resorts, and fairs, who desire an unparalleled musical

Dept., North Park College, Chicago. 

Repertoire of all standard oratorios. Reci- 
tals in four languages. 

From The ChicaiJo Press 

Mr. Kling has a voice of more than ordi- 
nary power, of virile timbre, commanding 
a high degree of flexibility in the vital mat- 
ter of contrast. ■ Evidently he has enjoyed 
the best of schooling. He discovered the 
requisite authority for Verdi's great aria 
"Ella Giammai m'Amo" from "Don Carlos" 
and demonstrated a thorough understanding 
of the oratorio style in his deHvery of the 
aria "Draw Near Ye People" from "Elijah". 
—Glenn Dillard Gunn, Herald-Examiner. 

Mr, Kling has even quality in his voice 
and has learned valuable secrets about the 
art of singing.— Edward Moore, Chicago 
Tribune. 

Norman Kling sings with a voice o£ great 
resonance, with a desire to do fine things 
and a youthful sincerity.— Eugene Stinson, 
Chicago Journal. 

Mr. Kling showed a voice of good quality 
and sang with understanding of the music. 
— Karlton Hackett, Chicago Evening Post. 

Mr. Kling showed a voice which has the 
high baritone range and a clear enunciation 
. . . freedom of style . . . and ease in vocal 
production.— Maurice Rosenfeld, Chicago Daily

hearts and sympathies of 
the audience by his con- 
sistently good musicianship

all, and came soaring out 
clear and full above the 125 
voices in the chorus." — La- 
moni, (la.) Chronicle. 

"The general public was 
more enthusiastic over this 
concert than any g:iven dur-

Pianist Gives Recital 

M. Jennette Loudon, heard in a piano recital 
at The Playhouse, is an artist with a vital and 
natural grace of musical thought. There are 
tew makers of music who have so delicate a 
sense of what is lovely and abiding in the turn 
of a phrase. These qualities were present to fill 
her v^rformance with beauty of suggestion. — Eu- 
gene Stinson, Chicago Daily Journal. 

THE BEETHOVEN TRIO 

As pianist and founder of the Trio, Miss 
Loudon has achieved distinction as a maker of 
programs. This fine organization is available 
for Clubs, Schools and Civic Associations. 

"The Beethoven Trio have the best right in 
the world to their name. The name is in fact an 
ideal name, none too easy to live up to, and 
throws down a gauntlet to criticism. But in the 
case of the Beethoven Trio — to hear them is to 
enjoy. Miss Jennette Loudon, whom I have 
never heard before, is herself the flesh and 
blood-reflection of the master's spirit, in my 
humble opinion." — Chicago Evening American,

Miss Eitner adds personal charm and loveliness of demeanor to her other 
gifts of temperament and musical culture. She was tremendously successful, 
winning an ovation, not only from the enthusiastic and understanding public, 
but from the orchestra as weU. Mr. Stock was so sure of Miss Eitner's 
work and Miss Eitner so letter-perfect that neither conductor nor soloist 
needed the usucil interchange of look for opening cues and mutual agree- 
ment. — Chicago American, Herman Devries.

One of the greatest of the younger virtuosos now before the public. Her 
beautiful tone, vigor, deep and tender feeling, and certainty of technic, 
added to a charm of personality, insures a popular reception from her 
audience. — Milwaukee Telegram. 

Although the convention heard soloists from New York and other centers 
of art, the one receiving the most praise was Olga Eitner. Many pronounced 
the little girl a new Morini. With a tone of extraordinary sweetness she 
wove a spell of enchantment over a large audience in Convention Hall, 
mastering difiBculties with an ease and authority as great as that of the 
young Austrian girl. — Kansas City Star.

Debut Recital, May 31, 1925 



Voice of exquisite texture. Quality worth going some dis- 
tance to hear. — Edward Moore, Chicago Daily Tribune. 

One of the most successful debut recitals among the 
younger generation. Stage manners are delightfully natural, 
winning, simple, one might say lovable. Singing ranks high 
for its qualities of musical sincerity, charm and refinement. 
The voice is of delicate, limpid timbre, especially melodious 
in the half-tints, but always sympathetic and appealingly 
young and fresh. — Herman Devries, Chicago Evening Ameri- 
can. 

Sang with good taste. An excellent foundation, 
W^ ell-sustained tone. — Karleton Hackett, Chicago 
Evening Post. 

Voice has sympathetic quality, especially in middle register. 
There is also considerable flexibility and a timbre which in 
such songs as those by Mendelssohn, Schumann and Brahms is 
exquisite. Her enunciation is good both in Italian and Ger- 
man. — Maurice Rosenfeld, Chicago Daily News, 

Ravishing dewiness of tone. Cajoling richness — few so- 
pranos can bid the angels "Take, Oh Take Me" so prettily as 
she. So far as searching out of the nature, mood and struc- 
ture of a song is concerned. Miss McAfee is both well-bred 
and infallible. A delightful artist. — Eugene Stinson, Chicago

Juanita Park Masters 

COMPOSER- PI ANISTE 
Accompanist Teacher 

Seven years of study with the 
noted teacher, Adolf Weidig, with 
fifteen years of successful piano 
teaching have given Juanita Park 
Masters excellent foundation for her 
composition work and as accompan- 
ist and instructor. Mr. Weidig says 
of her: "She is an excellent musi- 
cian — a splendid pianist and a very 
proficient theorist and has a charm- 
ing talent for composition. Her ex- 
perience as a teacher covers a num- 
ber of years and the results have 
been most satisfactory." 

Her published numbers (Clayton F. 
Summy Co. and Gamble Hinged Co., 
Publishers), include "Seven Tunes 
for Tots" — seven easy teaching 
pieces, for the beginner, presenting 
the first principles of note-re-^ding, 
rhythm and tempo; "Four Quaint 
Dances" for children in third grade, 
for the teaching of expression, 
tythym, phrasing and accents. Many 
other works are in press and will be 
published shortly. 

Mrs. Masters is an exponent of 
the Robyn course for advanced and 
beginning pupils.

It has not been customary in the past for 
Directories, such as this, to print the fees of 
artist-advertisers. 

The publishers of this Directory are re- 
sponsible for the announcement by many 
advertisers of their current terms. 

Engagements obtained by artists who ad- 
vertised their fees last season proved the 
value of this departure from old methods 
of advertising. 

Those who engage artists have to know 
their prices. Much correspondence will be 
saved (and some engagements saved, too, 
which are lost for failure to correspond!) 
when fees are published. 

By publishing his fees the artist is placing 
a value on his services which the public will 
come to accept as standard, the same as it 
does other advertised prices. 



// this Directory has been successful in bringing attention and engage- 
ments to its advertisers — AND IT HAS — one important reason, its 
publishers know, is that described above.

The flute like voice of Horace Stroh,

G. D. Gunn, Herald-Examiner. 

Has a pleasing personality. "A soprano 
voice of e'xquisite quality and sympa- 
thy." — Oshkosh North Western. 

"His tones were sweet and he showed 
careful training. He was called back 
many times by the insistent applause 
of the audience." — Fond du Lac Daily 
Reporter. 

Horace has a flute-like voice of re- 
markable range.— Herald Examiner. 

His voice has fine carrying quality, 
clear, well produced tone. Rhythm, 
pitch, phrasing, all are first-class, the 
kind of singer for whom it is easy to 
play accompaniments." — Philip Manuel, 
Organist Second Presbyterian Church. 



"This little lad, Horace Stroh, has a 
remarkable voice. Either in any diffi- 
cult oratorio or in some simple idyl, 
Horace sings with appealing sweetness 
and mature skill."— (Rev.) Philip Yarrow. 

"Master Stroh is a born coloratura, and 
has a very sweet and flexible voice — ex- 
celled in 'Lo Hear the Gentle Lark' and 
•The Wren' (flute obligato)."— Victor 
Nielson, Minneapolis Journal. 

Horace Stroh made a good impression— 
for a boy singer. He displayed astound- 
ing breath control. He has been well

bers he sings with great skill. — Minne-

ANOTHER SPLENDID SEASON for 

Alma Hays Reed, Soprano 



Besides filling a number of 
important engagements in the 
East and South, Mrs. Reed 
made a successful tour to the 
Coast, filling nine engagements. 
She is booked for a return 
Coast tour for the coming 
season. Following are criti- 
cisms by two of Chicago's 
foremost critics : 

A voice that floated out in suave 
quality and pointed itself in un- 
derstandable English. . . . To her 
lovely voice and accurate enuncia- 
tion, Mrs. Reed added a manner 
of projection compounded of un- 
smiling and unfailing humor and 
complete simplicity. As a result 
one hearer was made utterly happy. 
— Edward Moore in Chicago Daily 
Tribune. 

Mrs. Reed has a combination of 
attributes that fit her eminently 
for her profession. The voice is 
of lovely, pure, floating quality, 
freely produced and modulated. 
Her treatment of French, Italian 
and German text is satisfyingly 
accurate, and her style of inter- 
pretation has authority and finish. 
-—Herman Devries in Chicago Eve- 
ning American. 




Paducah, Ky., she has shown a 
fondness for singing negro spiritu- 
als. Her rendition of these folk 
songs has become so popular, that 
Mrs. Reed's voice is recognized she seldom gives a program with- 
one of the "big" voices. Born in out including them.

BLANCHE SLOCUM 



Dramatic Contralto 



Excerpts from criticisms after Studebaker 
Theatre Recital. October 4, 1925 

"A voice of great natural beauty _ of 
tone." — Arthur Hackett, Chicago Evening 
Post. 

"She has learned the art of singing. 
Her phrazing was beautifully polished and 
distinguished, the shading correct and 
tasteful. The vocal style pure and noble. 
She has become more than a singer— she 
is an artist." — Herman Devries, Chicago 
Evening American. 

"Contralto scores in Studebaker Recital. 
She disclosed a rich vocal quality, serious 
manner in interpretation and clenr enun- 
ciation of the texts." — Maurice Rosenfeld, 
The Chicago Daily News. 

"Miss Slocum's voice is of a traditional 
contralto timbre, rich, colorful, yet_ som- 
bre. Her taste in music literature is un- 
usual and her knowledge of what makes 
a program interesting is considerable. A 
clever understanding of the desires of a 
mixed audience." — Glenn Dillard Gunn, 
Chicago Examiner. 

"In Shubert's Aufenthalt, with \yhich the 
singer displayed dexterity, drawing from 
it its inherent tensity of feeling. The song 
of Laborers of Berri also captured the 
fancy of the audience with its soaring 
glorification of physical power._ Her Chant 
D' Amour won prolonged plaudits from her 
listeners."— Chicago Journal. 

OTHER PRESS NOTICES 

"Miss Slocum's stage presence is queenly 
and most engaging. Salvos after salvos 
shook the vast auditorium. Her welcome 
was nothing short of sensational. 'Her 
voice,' quoting Mary Garden, 'js phenom- 
enal.* One can say that it is a voice 




with a wonderful range and possibilities." 
— Musical Courier, New York. 

Orchestra Hall Recital 

"A big and beautiful voice, a dignified 
and ingratiating stage presence." — Ex- 
aminer. 

"A voice of great power . . . great 
natural gifts of voice. _ A quality of sin- 
cerity." — Chicago Evening Post. 

"Orchestra Hall, great as it is, was none 
too big for the Slocum audience." — Music 
News.

These Dramatic Recitals, both enter- 
taining and educational, will be found 
very appropriate for University, College 
and Music Club audiences. The "Nibe- 
lungen Ring" and "Lohengrin" w^ere pre- 
sented at the University of Chicago, dur- 
ing the summer quarter of 1925, drew 
large audiences and excited much inter- 
est. Special soloists and choir assisted.

"We may take The Nibelungen 
Ring in one of three ways. We may 
consider it merely as a retelling of 
some of the greatest of the ancient 
legends of the Norse mythology. It 
then becomes a national epic of the 
Northern peoples, as the Iliad and 
Odyssey were the great epics of the 
Southern peoples. 

"Or we may take it as an ancient 
story rearranged by Richard Wag- 
ner to teach social and political les- 
sons. In this view it is a great 
allegory of the political life of Eu- 
rope in Wagner's day. It is a 
socialistic pamphlet, written in

Wagner's place as the dominant musical 
genius of the nineteenth century is con- 
ceded, but his greatness as poet and 
dramatist has scarcely been recognized. 
His gifts as an entrancing story-teller, 
with the power to interest, entertain and 
stir an audience deeply, have been ob- 
scured. Many of these stories were orig- 
inally written and published as poems, 
and only later combined with the match- 
less music to produce Wagnerian opera. 



plendid poetic imagery. Such is 
vir. Bernard Shaw's interpretation, 
n his book called The Perfect 
Vagnerite. 

"Or, finally, we may take the 
Tama as veiling great spiritual and 
ternal truths, not put there by 
Vagner, but inherent in the great 
tory itself. In this last view there 
omes out the truth of the curse of 
he lust of power; the truth of the 
eal supremacy of love ; the truth 
if the inevitableness and eternity 
f the reign of moral law in the 
I'orld."

FRIEDA STOLL 

Soprano 




New York, March 25, 1924.— 
Frieda StoU has studied with me 
for the past three seasons and in 
my opinion she is capable, very in- 
telligent, conscientious, serious in 
her work, and possesses a charm- 
ing personality. — Richard Hageman 
(Former director for 15 years at 
the Metropolitan Opera Co., the 
Chicago Civic Opera, and Ravinia 
Opera). 



Frieda Stoll appeared at the La 
Salle Theatre, Chicago, July 27, 
1923 (singing the "Mad Scene" 
from "Hamlet,"' by Ambroise 
Thomas), and demonstrated not 
only the possession of an admira- 
ble voice but enviable skill in the 
handling of it. — Felix Borowski. 



Frieda_ Stoll, soprano, sang the 
"Polonaise" from "Mignon" with 
the Little Symphony Orchestra of 
Chicago, under my direction in the 
Studebaker Theatre, May 31, 1923, 
with most admirable results. The 
delightful quality, flexibility and 
poise of her voice and her art 
made an impression of mature au- 
thority both on the critical audi- 
ence and the more critical orches- 
tra. — Glenn Dillard Gunn. 



Frieda Stoll, a young coloratura 
soprano, has a presence which pre- 
disposes her hearers to pleasure, 
and a voice of valuable clearness 
and ease. — Eugene Stinson, Chicago 
Daily Journal. 



Frieda Stoll has a coloratura 
voice of wide range and ample vol- 
ume, always mounting well to the 
pitch. Her runs were accurate 
and she seemed sure of herself. — 
Karleton Hackett, Chicago Eve- 
ning Post. 



Frieda Stoll, soprano, swept her hearers to a high pitch of interest and admira- 
tion in her first group of songs, and before the program was well under way she 
had won their hearts completely, for she proved to be one of the finest artists 
this city has ever heard. Mme. Stoll sang a well arranged program and scored 
heavily in her part. Her voice is a lovely instrument well trained and with a 
warmth and depth that is remarkable. Her range, too, is something to marvel 
on and her control is perfect. Furthermore, she sings without effort and inter- 
prets her selections with all the feeling at her command. — Watertown Daily Times.

WATT WEBBER 

TENOR 

Joint Soloist with CLAIRE DUX, 
famous Soprano, at Orchestra Hall, 
Chicago. March 27, 1925. 

Leading tenor "The Musical Robber," dir, 
by Isaac VanGrove, Central Theater, June, 
1925; also at Forest Park, St. Louis. 

Soloist 5 seasons Paulist Choristers, Orches- 
tra Hall.

wonky. Violinist, Spring, 1926. 

Prepared to do Oratorio ("Messiah," "Crea- 
tion," "Elijah," "Stabat Mater," others) 
Concert and Recital. 

Mr. Webber sang the Rossini "Cujus 
Animam from "Stabat Mater" wit^h the 
Paulist Choristers at Orchestra Hall, Chicago, 
during Lent and the critics wrote: 

"The sensation of the evening, however, 
was provided by Mr. Webber, an exceedingly 
youthful tenor, who holds the local altitude 
record for a legitimate high D flat, which 
is a semitone above the Civic Opera tenor's 
score. His voice has charming lyric quality, 
is slight in volume, and refreshingly youth- 
ful." — Glenn Dillard Gunn, Herald-Examiner. 

One of the_ surprises of the concert. Ap- 
parently he is a young singer with a voice 
that has not yet reached full maturity, but

What They Say 

AN APPRECIATION 

Miss Jean Barron Hurst delightfully entertained a large but very discriminating 
audience of guests at the Battle Creek Sanitarium with her very clever reading of 
Philip Barry's comedy, "You and I." 

Without the assistance of any scenic effects whatever, Miss Hurst created her 
own atmosphere for the play most successfully and impersonated the various char- 
acters with great dramatic ability. The audience was charmed with Miss Hurst's 
work and we will be glad to welcome her back to the Sanitarium at any future date. 
— F. Winifred Harvey, Hostess. 

"THE ORIENT" 
1308 Auditorium BIdg. 
Dear Miss Hurst: O"^'- 21. 1525. 

If I am able to be of any help in arranging a chautauqua tour for you I shall be 
glad to do anything within my power. As manager of the Coit Alber Chautauqua 
Company I found your work for that company always satisfactory to committees 
and audiences. Your sympathy for child life and your evident knowledge of the 
technique of child training enables you to give exceptional service. I shall be 
pleased to endorse you and your work to anyone who may be interested. — 
A. L. Flude. 




Miss Hurst's portrayal of character in 
"The Melting Pot" was realistic in the 
extreme. Her rendition of David's re- 
cital of the terrible Russian massacre 
was intense with passion and voiced with 
wonderful truth and pathos. — The Madi- 
sonian, Richmond, Ky. 



"Abraham Lincoln" was given an in- 
teresting and powerful interpretation by 
Miss Jean Barron Hurst at the Teach- 
ers' College auditorium last evening. 
Her reading was marked by clarity, 
force and dramatic sweep. The most 
impressive scenes were the two of the 
surrender and the assassination. — Moor- 
head Daily News, Moorhead, Minn.

DITA SMITH .has 
■■■^ been one of our

entertainers for a 
number of years. 

Since receiving her 
Masters Degree from 
the Lyceum Arts 
Conservatory, Chicago, Miss Smith 
has not only filled concert engage- 
ments in every state in the Union, 
but in Europe as well, where she 
served as an entertainer for the 
American soldiers. 




A radiant young woman with a vel- 
vet voice, a gift of mimicry, a trained 
sense of vocal and dramatic technic, a 
golden grace of movement, and an un- 
mistakable flair for color and simplicity 
of costume. — Sam Putnam, Chicago 
Evening Post. 



A charming, thoroughly experienced, 
versatile and most gifted young enter- 
tainer who has won a distinctive place 
for herself in the front ranks of this 
delightful branch of art, possessing 
great personal beauty and a sweet, 
well-modulated voice, in addition to her 
distinguished abilities as Shakespear- 
ian reader, delineator of modern plays, 
Southern stories and songs of every 
variety; also as "The Story Book 
Girl," in costume, is she inimitably 
successful as a delightful entertainer 
for children in "The Story Hour for 
Children." Her own novelty is the 
clever presentation of guitarologues." — 
Agnes Beldon, Music News.

Doing It Differently 



Those who are familiar with artist directories of the 
past will observe in this one several departures from old 
style methods. 

The publication of fees by many Artists — Thumb 
indexing of Directory — Improved character of 
advertising "copy" — Free co-operative service 
These are all changes which merit attention by those 
artists who seek a medium of advertising that will effec- 
tively unite supply with demand.

Without Good HEALTH, Good ART is Lost! 

The art of singing or playing is a very precious thing — 
precious both to the artist and to mankind. Yet, before this 
art can be fully enjoyed — fully given out — it must be sup- 
ported by GOOD HEALTH. 

YOU cannot go upon the platform and do your best unless 
your body is at ITS best. 

For your body needs care 
— it needs attention — it needs 
exercise. 

The only way to be sure of 
ii-ec« tlrngs in their right pro- 
portion is to put yourself under 
the direction of a professional 
physical trainer, who will 
make it his business to keep 
you "conditioned." 

Some of the greatest musi- 
cians in Chicago, opera singers, 
orchestra directors, teachers — 
have learned the value of 
Postl's Physical Training and 
through its aid are keeping 
themselves in perfect condi- 
tion. 

For twenty years Charlie 
Postl has been taking care of 
the greatest of Chicago's doers 

— the business and professional men who keep the wheels of 
activity grinding — the men who believe in staying fit for 
tomorrow — and the other tomorrows that are to follow. 

The work of Charlie Postl has written its own advertise- 
ments and men have come, and come — until the Postl Health 
Club has grown to be the largest place of its kind in the world. 

Here at Charlie Postl's is the playground where gather the 
great men of Chicago to relax — to build muscle — to reduce or 
put on weight as the need may be — to overcome physical faults 
— to develop endurance — to become HE-MEN. 

Ask yourself this question "AM I BUILDING UP— OR 
WEARING DOWN?" That's the question. Think it over. 
Answer it frankly.

Never enough of these 
fine Pianos 



HERE are two outstanding reasons why dis- 
criminating music lovers choose the Mason 
&. Hamlin Piano in preference to all others. 

First— because the Mason & Hamlin is musically the most 
beautiful piano the world has ever known. Its rare, colorful 
tone has been acclaimed as near perfection as human skill 
can attain. 

Second— because the Mason &. Hamlin Piano retains^ita 
beauty. The patented Mason &. Hamlin Tone Resonator— 
an exclusive Mason &. Hamlin feature— preserves the orig> 
inal tonal charm for years and years and years. 

While the Mason & Hamlin is of all pianos the costliest ia 
the making, those competent to judge say that its decidedly 
longer life makes it in the end the most economical piano to buy. 
Over the years of Mason & Hamlin history there never have 
been enough of these fine pianos to meet the growing demand.
